What Are Your Goals?

What Are Your Goals?

When most people talk about their dream bodies or getting healthy, the plan is abstract. Someone will say “I want to lose weight” or “I want to weigh 120 pounds again” and that’s a good place to start. However, the reason that so many of these plans fail is that there is no real plan. You wouldn’t say “I want to build a house” and then start without having blueprints, would you? Think of your body like a building that needs to be put up. You need a solid foundation, a good layout, the materials to build, and the plans done by a professional. While not everyone can have a professional work with them on their ultimate body goal, the concept is basically the same. You need to have a plan before you can reach the goal.

Houses don’t get built overnight. It takes a great deal of time and effort to put one up. The same is true of getting the body you've always wanted. You can try to get down to your goal measurements and such with just an end result in mind, but it is far more difficult. You need to figure out what needs to change in your diet, in your exercise plan, and in your daily life to get you to that goal. Those plans are just like the blueprint to a house. The more detailed they are, the better you will do. There won’t be any guessing or hoping when it comes to your path if you have everything written down and planned out. While life might throw you a couple of curve balls, it’s much easier to stay on track when you already have an established idea and set plan in regards to making yourself look and feel better again.

Treating Your Problem Areas

Treating Your Problem Areas

When it comes to losing weight, there are a lot of different things that you need to consider. There is often a conversation about how weight is different for everyone. After all, the thing that most people want to work on is actually their fat content. This means how much of their weight is caused by extra fatty tissue versus other things such as muscle, which weighs more than fat. When you look at the scale, it is important to remember that different things can be causing that number and you shouldn't always base your next health related decision of off of that single point of reference.

If you are working on losing weight, one of the first things that a lot of people notice is that they drop a few pounds almost immediately. This can do two different things. One is that it makes them feel great about their work-out habits and give them a boost of confidence. The other possibility is that it can make them feel like they have even more work to do than they thought, because losing weight is often described as difficult. The problem with either of these is that the rate of weight loss will not be sustained forever, as you do tend to lose quite a bit of weight when you first start working out. This is due to water weight.

Water weight is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It is weight that registers on the scale due to how much you drink but don't sweat back out. This is water that is left in the body in addition to the 50%-60% that you should naturally have as an adult. This water can cause puffiness or bloating which can increase the appearance of fat. When you exercise, this tends to reduce quickly and therefore you may seem to lose a good amount of weight quickly. This means that when you suddenly don't lose as much weight as you did last week, you shouldn't feel discouraged. It's just that now you're getting down to the actual fat as opposed to excess water.
